Like most sports out there, things tend to get mighty bro-y. Skiing is no different. However ladies, this calls for opportunity, not pessimism.
Icelantic shattered the icy bro-heavy trend by forming the first ever all-women ski crew. These four women set out to La Parva, Chile to shoot seven days of female-full shredding, earning themselves “Best Video 2012”. Like these shredtastic ladies, being a chick and a skier no matter what your ability, which sticks you're shredding, or what peak you point them down, automatically makes you a big fish in a small pond.
You'll turn heads, but even better, like the Icelantic gals you're guaranteed to have a killer time playing in the mountains. Part of that fun comes from the sheer awesomeness of being a part of the universal ski community. This culture, whose mantra is as much work hard / play hard as your alma mater's, and where obnoxiously bright clothing is a must, is one that crosses all boarders. To go from Europe to Canada to South America and back to the US and be amongst the same, small community of snow lovers is a unique and ultimate warm and fuzzy feeling. The mountains speak one language and we are all out there listening and showing our love back.
